As expected, the rumored Junior Dos Santos vs. Roy Nelson fight for UFC 117 is now official. UFC has confirmed the fight and announced it will be on the PPV portion of the event on August 7 in Oakland, CA.

This will be the first time we get to see Dos Santos' ground game. Nelson is going to fight conservative and take him to the ground. I still think Dos Santos will have the capability to explode and get the fight back to his feet a couple of times but eventually it will wear him down. His bet bet is to try and KO Nelson early.

I don't think Nelson will get him down so KO for Santos I feel.

I'm torn because I'm a big fan of both. I think if it stays standing Nelson will get KO'd. If it stays on the ground he'll win a UD.
